I don't know what went wrong. I greased my cookie sheets well with butter however; the cookies still stuck so badly that it took my daughter and I forever to pry them off the cookie sheet. We were left with broken bits that we put in a container and will use to top ice cream with tomorrow. DH loves them yet the kids and I all felt there were too sweet. I will give the recipe another try...cutting the sugar back as well as the baking time and see what happens. Will give the review stars the next time I make them as I do not want to short change you Jubes. Made and reviewed for OZ/NZ Recipe Swap #52.
If you're a 'crispy freak' like me, this cookie will do the job. They are quite sweet though. The coconut and nuts are wonderful. Jubes, I may have messed up. I weighed the 125g of butter which equaled 1/2 cup. I poured half of the butter/sugar mixture over the dry ingredients. Anymore than that and you'd be able to drink it. I must have done something wrong. These baked in 12 minutes in my oven, and yielded 40 cookies. Honoured to make this as a "Thank You" for voting for Lawrencetown, Nova Scotia in the 2010 Kraft Hockeyville Competition.
